Staffing at Calon Celtiadd

Celtic Care home in Port Talbot

The Home will always be staffed with a minimum of two staff at wakeful times with a sleep-in member of staff during the night. However staffing levels are subject to change depending on the assessment of needs, we will therefore staff the Home accordingly in line with Care Home (Wales) Regulations 2002 and Regulation 18.

Staff will be trained to meet the service users needs and to recognise when they have changed, and appropriate action will be taken accordingly.

The Proprietor/ Responsible Individual is Mr Geoffrey Parry. Mr Parry is a local businessman with many years experience in business matters. He is fully committed to the Home and the Service Provision.

The proposed Registered Manager of the Home is Mrs Christine Beynon. Christine has vast experience with this service user group and has the following qualifications:

  • Registered nurse for people with learning disabilities.
  • Diploma of Higher Education (Nursing)
  • NVQ Level 4 (Management); BTEC
  • Advanced Professional Diploma in Positive Behavioural Management
  • nstitute for Supervision and Management (ISM) award in Supervisory Studies.

Chris has also been awarded certificates in such topics as:

  • Managing Safely for Healthcare Professionals by the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSHH)
  • Clinical Effectiveness in Practice
  • POVA Level 3.
  • Chris is currently registered with the Care Council for Wales to work as an Adult Care Home Manager

Staff Structure

The staff team at Calon Celtiadd currently comprises:
Registered Manager x 1
Senior Care Worker x 1
Care Workers x 15
Handyman/Gardener x 1

Staff Training

The staff at the Home will be trained to a minimum QCF level 2 in Health and Social Care. It is intended that all staff progress their training as they and the company wish. Potential staff who do not wish to train will not be employed at the Home as the company view training as a vital issue and paramount to the quality of the service provided.

Staff will also receive training in behaviour management. Minimal Restraint will only ever be used in extreme circumstances. Where there may be a need for such practice this would have been discussed and agreed with the service user, their representative, Care Manager and relevant health professionals at the initial assessment meeting, and reviewed as appropriate. De-escalation techniques will be used where appropriate. Issues relating to behaviour management would be incorporated in to the individuals Care Plan and, as such, it is expected that any such management would be resolved prior to the need for restraint. .

Clinical Support

At Celtic Care (Swansea) Ltd, we believe that all individuals should live as normal a life as possible and that medication should not be used to enable staff to manage individuals. We work closely with placing Authorities to ensure practices and management of challenging behaviour is current and updated as required by law. As well as linking in with local generic health professionals, Calon Celtiadd also has access to the full specialist clinical team based within the local adult learning disability team.
